Following an introduction from Sally Anne about her art and career, she will begin the day with the first part of her demonstration. You will then prepare your canvas for painting and sketch out your design. After a second brief demo you will begin painting using colour, tone and balance to firm up your composition. The afternoon will begin with some instruction on the use of collage which you will add to your piece and you will complete your work using some finishing techniques. The day will end with a critique.
Through out the day there will be lots of one to one time with Sally Anne and you will be encouraged to add your own personality into your work.
Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea
